White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders shut down White House reporter April Ryan during Tuesday’s press briefing after Ryan repeatedly shouted at her and wouldn’t let another reporter answer.
Ryan, who was mocked on Tuesday for spreading fake news, refused to let Sanders call on another reporter after she explained the White House’s issue with the national anthem protests.
After repeatedly yelling and interrupting Sanders for several moments, Sanders finally addressed Ryan, saying, “I let you rudely interrupt me and your colleagues.”
Ryan continued to pester her, interrupting Sanders as she was trying to give her an answer.
Sanders finally responded, “April, I’ve addressed your question and I’m not going to continue to engage with you.”
